How To Choose
What should you expect from a blasting company? While every need to break rock is unique to the project, there are some universal deliverables that are absolutely fundamental when it comes to a drilling and blasting company.

For the icing on the cake, though, consider the benefits of having employee owners working on your project. Employee-ownership, which is rather unique for a blasting company, results in a renewed and improved level of service to our customers. Our employee owners know Maine Drilling & Blasting’s success is directly tied to their own (and vice versa), so we take greater responsibility for quality, safety, production, results and innovation. We have a greater stake in making sure that everything we do keeps our customers happy and satisfied.
There are certainly specific considerations to take into account depending on your project. Check the links below for some great considerations, that homeowners should keep in mind when choosing a blasting company, as opposed to what a commercial contractor should be looking for, versus what will be important from the perspective of an energy developer, or quarry operator, etc. Maine Drilling & Blasting delivers on them all.
